  • ARK: Extinction Release Date Revealed!

    Hello Survivors!

    Studio Wildcard is proud to announce ARK’s third expansion pack, “Extinction”!

    By far our most ambitious project yet, we are thrilled to take you back to where it all started. Finish your journey through the worlds of ARK in ‘Extinction’, where the story began and ends: on Earth itself! An Element-infested, ravaged planet filled with fantastical creatures both organic and technological, Earth holds both the secrets of the past and the keys to its salvation.

    ARK: Extinction will release worldwide on November 6, 2018, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam, joining the desert-themed Scorched Earth and the underground, derelict biome Aberration, in continuing to unravel the mysteries of ARK!

    As a veteran Survivor who has conquered all previous obstacles, the ultimate challenge now awaits you. Can you defeat the gigantic roaming Titans which dominate the planet and complete the ARK cycle to save Earth's future?

    In the months leading up to Extinction there will be routine drops of Extinction-related Explorer Notes on The Island, Scorched Earth, and Aberration. Once collected these notes will unlock new Extinction-related skins.

    There will also be the appearance of more powerful Tek-themed Dinosaur variants within the ARKs each month! We have already released the first set of these Explorer Notes last Friday which also included the first Extinction related skin ‘Corrupted Helm’ and mighty the Tek Rex.

    Excited!  I'm very attached to Aberration, so I'm really curious how this next one fares in comparison!  

     

    Do dedicated servers get the dossier drops too?  Do I have to enable something?

    People are going to complain regardless, go play something else if you cant be patient, they were very clear that the countdown was leading to a release date. Everyone got mad about Ragnarok delays so they're trying to be sure to actually do a release date for Extinction. Now if they delay Extinction, then everyone can riot.

    So are the Tek Rex here to stay? Or are they going to disappear from the current maps after the next tek dino appears?

    the world of extinction better be a size close to ragnarok of bigger because this is incredible and there better be many new creatures for what im saying is that this needs to be the best dlc ever and I would probably pay for what im offering and I would accept a few more weeks of work or some sort of time because this has to be worth everything ark has givin us so this dlc will be the best (I hope don't screw this wild card please) dlc so far and will be the greatest

    *sigh* I've waited about 2 years between WoW expansions and  now I see people whining about waiting for 5 months...

    Ark is closing for Extinction, not the (real) world >_<

    waiting for ARK vanilla 2.

    Same, I started playing Ark early on because I wanted to play a survival game with dinosaurs. SE added zero new actual dinosaurs. Aberration introduced zero new dinosaurs. I was bummed when each new release would be a jellyfish, bird, sheep, or unicorn.

    I get other people enjoy all the other stuff, and I'm not against it. Personally though, I just wanted to play a dinosaur game, which is 100% how it was advertised early on.

    People are mad because this expansion (which a lot of people have already paid for with the season pass) was promised to be released in spring 2018. Now, at the very end of that timeframe, WC gave us a hyped up countdown and, at the end of that countdown, we got a delay announcement disguised as a positive press release.

    I can't wait, it looks awesome!  All the fixes and updates and patches and TLC passes this year have been great.  To have a new DLC that runs well, doesn't crash and is just amazing... takes time to get right.  I make games for a living too Ark Devs!  Keep this up.  It looks good.  Ignore all the haters!  :)

    Aberrations delays, bugs and crashes would like to say hi.

    Seriously  seriously y’all I was ready to buy the dlc why do you have to take so long to bring out a map if your killing off legacy then why not bring it out now let it test it out at least on single player that way we get a feel for the map
